  1. I need to do a search on the beard to see who has tried this. My top procedures right now for battling my acne scars are (MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF EACH, OF COURSE ALONG WITH SOME PDT AND ABSTAINING FROM DAIRY FOR ADDRESSING ANY PESKY ADDITIONAL BREAKOUTS): DEEP FX SUBCISION SUCTION PRP Don't know when I can have the subcision suction though as the Iranian doctor has failed to respond to any more of my emails for some strange reason. I'll update the other thread about it.
  2. Well, after realizing that DEEP FX alone will not make my skin perfect, I set out on a quest to research other avenues I can try while having the DEEP FX. I called a doctor in South Denver who is conducting clinical trails for this new treatment where your platelet-rich blood is drawn, centrifuged and re-injected after subcision into acne depressions to add volume through cell regeneration. I think the procedure is formally called PRP. Not sure of the particulars, need to research more, but when
  3. Thank you all for your comments. I appreciate your support. Yes, Ziko and I are right though that you cannot see scarring when you are swollen up after the first day of treatment and a camera flash. But trust me, it is severe enough for doctors to have done dermabrasion, punch excisions and most recently this laser. Yesterday when my doctor was lasering me he said I had very severe scarring on my forehead and temples, which definitely stung. I only posted my pictures once in the seven years ive
  4. jackiey....I heart you for saying that You just made my day, especially after being villified by family members over the years about it. I can assure you though that it is moderate to severe, and that is coming from several doctors who have seen me in the light. What you see in that pic is just swelling and a camera flash that pretty much makes even the harshest of scarring invisible. One time I was in a car with my Dad and he looked over at my face while I was sitting in the passenger's seat.
  5. Good luck dude. I hope you get the results you seek!!! I might go and try fraxel restore combined with a subcision later (I wont do ablative laser again due to redness issues) Have you ever had your doctor use IPL laser for the redness. That is what my doctor uses. I know it also helps with rosacea. Yeah but I'll pass, I jsut dont want to risk anything right now. The redness is fading, but slowly. And I'm not gonna do an ablative laser just so I need 5 IPL treatments. IPL is not
  6. I had it done. I was in the room for well over an hour as they were injecting lidocaine, subcising all of my scars with a NOKOR needle and blasting them at 25 mj at 20% coverage. Is this a high enough setting for very wide rolling scars? Funny thing is I am not swollen or bloody red enough, which I attribute to the prednizone. As they were subcising, I could hear those tough fibrous strands breaking up. I also had some as he called it 'smoothing' work with the Active FX. Should I be concerned?
  7. And don't give up...10 grand is not alot to spend on scars, and based on your post, you have not tried everything. Google subcision suction and recell. Subcision alone is not enough, the daily suctioning is supposed to capitalize on the results. There is peer-reviewed information from medical journals on this procedure. For the subcision suction, you are going to have to ask various subcision doctors in your area and send them links to information about the procedure. That is what im trying to d
  8. Do you think the efficacy of the laser is only as good as its user? I was just taking another closer look at those before and afters and became somewhat surprised. That doctor's before and afters from La Jolla are unreal. I have never seen so much improvement!! Can you tell me if my doctor Verebelyi in Highlands Ranch, CO is as good?
  9. Thay dont use Aquaphor but something else that is less likely to make me break out.

  11. I decided to do the Deep FX this coming Thursday, but I am having an aggressive subcision combined with it. I need astonishing results with this!
  12. Not sure, but when I spoke with the woman she mentioned they were going to get it approved in 2 years, 2 years ago. They keep saying 2 years until if/when it gets approved. I got the impression it will be a LOOOONG time. But, there's no point in getting our hopes up until Ernestoria can corroborate his results with after photos.
  13. yea but it would cost me another $2000 for the actual first procedure.
  14. No, Recell cannot be done in US yet. Still need to wait a few more yars. I called their ioffice and that's what they told me.
  15. I am having another doctor look into the subcision suction. I sent him all the links about it I could find on google. He wants to know if there are any peer-reviewed articles on the procedure, so if anyone can come across anything, let me know.
  16. What I am really doing is postponing treatment rather than backing out completely. They were also going to prescribe to me all of these antibiotics and prednizone for the swlling.
  17. Helpwanted had a much less severe case of the acne pitting. My scars are much more pronounced, and from his feedback, he was not happy. Of course, he only had one treatment. Ziko and Jelar, who had rolling scars that were also much more mild than mine, also advised against it, saying it was a treacherous experience that cost more money than the pitiful results were worth. And from what I recall, they had more than one treatment. I would use the DEEP FX if I could combine it with several other p
  18. I decided to back out of doing the DEEP FX due to all of the negative reviews and the extreme cost. The office won't let me have the $500 depost bac, saying it is nonrefundable. I think they are a bunch of asshole crooks and should be shut down for this. I am in a deeper depression than befroe now knowing that I am out $500 on top of not having the treatment.

  20. Think about why you think this. You are vulnerable and you feel that since you are vulnerable you will be taken advantage of. I might be wrong, but you're most likely deferring to your own experience with a dermatologist where you were left disappointed. It only takes one dermatologist to plant the seeds of doubt. I suggest you take the initiative and do some digging around on google and finding out for yourself about the potency and promise of stem cells in an attempt to ease your doubts. You

  22. Even with all your breaking out, you're skin is not even that bad. Your scarring is not severe by any means and your forehead looks perfect. I have scarring all over my forehead, in addition to both cheeks and temples.
  23. Im begiining to worry it is all a hoax and he did not get the response from the treatment he was looking for. I hope he did, but deep inside I know he probably did not. I find it so hard to believe he could improve that severity of scarring.
  24. I am going to put alot of faith and bite the bullet for 3 fx treatments, but in all honesty, combining this with other procedures is really necessary for optimal results.
  25. No, I don't want to hurt my family and don't think I could ever do it, but my skin really holds me back in life. And the sad thing is I'm exactly 9 days from turning 30 and realized I lost all of my 20's to this. How horrible.
